PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a wonderful hands on project that ALL my students were excited about. The final projects were amazing and showed the high level of engagement my students had during this project.

The project was an extension to our area and perimeter unit. Students had to build their dream home using the guidelines I provided. It is leveled 1 - 3. ( 1 being the low group, 2 being an average group, 3 being for a high group) The pages look alike so students can't tell the difference. The levels become more complex by having more "fun" rooms to include in the home.

To start the project, I put together a powerpoint to show students what the outline of houses look like. (Kind of like a brochure you would get if you go see new homes) I explained the blueprint shows the length and width of rooms. I included pictures of houses that had exciting rooms like movie theaters, game rooms etc... After students got the idea of how to draw their dream home, I handed the correct leveled guidelines out.

Students would need: Their leveled guideline (included), the calculating page to find the perimeter and area of each room (included), and graph paper to draw their home on ( I had them tape two pieces side by side to allow for a bigger house).

The project took about 4 - 5 periods to complete. Great project for whole class or to give as a challenge to the high group.

This had to be the students' most favorite project we did in math.
